About the Author

Art Spiegelman is a contributing editor and artist for the New Yorker, and co-founder/editor of Raw, the acclaimed magazine of avant-garde comics and graphics. His drawings and prints have been exhibited in museums and galleries here and abroad. Honours he has received for Maus include the Pulitzer Prize, a Guggenheim fellowship, and nominations for the National Book Critics Circle Award. He lives in New York City.


"There's a 5000 pound mouse breathing down my neck!" Spiegelman tells us about the book that "both 'made' [him] and haunted [him] ever since." For 25 years, it's been: Why comics? Why mice? Why the Holocaust? For the silver anniversary of the only graphic narrative to have won a Pulitzer Prize, Spiegelman has created a companion volume about the how and the why, plus transcripts, family history, and the original three-page Maus cartoon-all copiously illuminated with hundreds of drawings, photos, and letters (including rejection letters from major publishers), many in color. An accompanying multimedia DVD provides a complete e-copy of Maus, home movies, audio interviews with father Vladek, thousands of additional sketches and cartoons, essays, more interviews, and still additional material. VERDICT Informative about everything you may or may not have thought to ask about Maus and the Spiegelmans, this exhaustive purgative has been well organized and packaged and succeeds in being grimly entertaining, indeed almost addictive. Required reading for serious students of graphic narrative and students of history, and bargained priced as well.-M.C. (c) Copyright 2011.
